Celebrating 100 Years

Celebrating 100 Years

The State Theatre in in 1939


Built in 1921 and designed by renowned architect Thomas Lamb, the historic State Theatre thrived well into the 1960s. Transformed back into a handsome facility for live performance after a period of neglect, the venue reopened as a non-profit performing arts center in April 1988, and the press and public raved about its visual and acoustical splendors. Learn more about our history over the last 100 years.
